a SHUbox retrospective
after being tagged by jen and heather, i’ve been saving this little blogging exercise for the right time, and i think today is it! hello to anyone swinging by from the happiness project blog; perhaps seeing some of my favorite posts might convince you to stick around for a while! plus, this blog DOES have a little birthday coming up in the near future; what better way to celebrate than a trip down memory lane?
[disclaimer: these ‘top 7’ posts are weighted towards the past year because quite honestly who can remember what they posted about in 2004!?? not me, especially off of caffeine.]

off to start the week!
i ended up taking a ridiculous nap yesterday AM [no caffeine, remember], making this weekend probably my laziest to date. maybe ever! however, i did manage to do the three essential tasks i set out to do [laundry, grocery shopping, and yoga!], AND i read a ton of never let me go and watched the glee project. so i’ll consider it a success!
the great fundraising act
susan of the great balancing act was diagnosed with lymphoma a few weeks ago, and her story is heart-wrenching. she is braving through it all but there are some pretty serious financial issues with getting her the medication she needs [see her blog for details]. the blogging community — led by janeetha — has put together a giant auction to raise funds for her. many great companies [and bloggers themselves] have donated goods — i definitely recommend checking it out.
workout: yoga @ BP — the planned instructor actually had an emergency and couldn’t make it, but the sub was great!
summer produce is photogenic
grilled salmon with tomato + peach salsa
i know some people are tired of the heat and are hating on summer, but i never will!!
